Popeye Village, the film set for the 1980 musical film "Popeye," is on the northwestern coast of Malta. For the film, it was the fictional village of Sweethaven, where Popeye went in search of his long-lost father. The film starred Robin Williams and Shelley Duval. It became a small and pleasant theme park, meaning a place to saunter with your kids, eat, watch a clip of the film, buy souvenirs and take selfies with the hired Popeyes, Olives, and Blutos. There is apparently no Sweetpea on site, possibly due to child labor laws. It is a bit eerie to see what looks like a ramshackle 19th C. Maine wood-built fishing village against the the arid, yellow-white stone cliffs of Malta. The location on GE or GMaps show a lot of photos of the place.
The film starred Robin Willian
The pretend-Popeyes in member photos all have decidedly skinny forearms (where's his spinach?), but Olive is appropriately tall and lanky. No one knows how many kids agreed to eat their spinach because that's how Popeye got his bulging arms. The original was a cartoon first drawn in 1929 and enjoyed by children throughout the 1930s, 40s and 50s. In addition to cartoon strips and comic books, Popeye became a series of movie-house cartoons in 1948. Here are some click-through pages of the various Popeye & friends drawings through the years: Fandom.
Interesting info. I haven't watched this movie. By the way, thanks for the suggestion, I'll look for it in the library of kodi builds. And I like Robin Williams, he was a great actor. I guess, this village is a wonderful place, and I do hope, it wasn't swamped by tsunami. I would like to visit it.
